Shocking new details have emerged in a gruesome murder case out the San Francisco suburbs where a man allegedly killed his longtime girlfriend – and onetime fiancée – before dismembering her body.

Joseph C. Roberts, 42, stands accused of murdering Rachel Elizabeth Imani Buckner, 27, whose bagged remains washed up alongside the shoreline of Bay Farm Island Bridge in Alameda in late July.

The Alameda Police Department arrested and charged Roberts in early September after identifying the scant human remains discovered in plastic bags sealed with duct tape. A three-day preliminary hearing recently revealed evidence that led the judge overseeing the case to set the matter for trial.
